Children’s church is available for children ages 6 through 6th grade.
Rainbows is our offering for children ages 3 through 5. This ministry designed just for them is offered before our Sunday morning worship service.
Children ages birth to three years old are cared for in our church nursery on Sunday mornings. Our experienced nursery workers are trained to offer a flexible, age-appropriate curriculum and provide a fun, caring environment where babies and toddlers can learn and play. Nursery care is available during our Bible Fellowship hour, and after the worship portion of the main Sunday morning service.
We are called as a church to; love God, love humanity, and make disciples. Many that are young in the faith, or desire greater depth, need someone to come along side them, and lead them into a deeper relationship in Christ. A mentor that will meet with them one-on-one and will model, teach and encourage them to grow in their faith. If you’re young in the faith, or need greater depth in your relationship with Jesus, this ministry is for you. Please contact us if you are interested!
As a church body we place a high value on community and fellowship, many of those experiences are centered around food. In fact, if you look at the ministry of Jesus, many of His most memorable moments centered around food. So with that heart, we would like to invite you to join us every second Sunday of the month following the morning service for our regular potluck lunch. If you are unable to bring a dish please know you’re more than welcome to enjoy this meal.

OVERFLOW YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY
As a young adult/college student, whether you call Hays home or you’re here going to school and/or working, our Young Adult and College ministry will be a place where you can find a home away from home. This quarterly dinner at various locations around town is a chance to build relationships, and provides opportunities for ministry to others. Childcare is available during our dinners.
Our Sunday evening prayer service is a welcome time of fellowship and prayer before the beginning of our busy weeks. It is a time to share burdens with one another while experiencing the power of God through prayer. This service fosters the building of relationships and provides an environment where we can be transparent with one another about our prayer requests and needs. Prayer service meets on Sunday nights from 6 to 8. The first hour we meet in the sanctuary for a time of personal prayer. The second hour we meet in the prayer room to share our needs, and pray for one another. Feel free to join us for all, or part of this time of prayer.
THE COFFEE HOUSE SMALL GROUP
Beyond the actual coffee of a coffee house the atmosphere of conversation is one of the main reasons why we go to coffee houses. Even if you’re alone with your nose in a book, you’re still with people surrounded with conversation. This is the heart of The Coffee House Small Group, you do not have to love coffee to join us. It is a time for real spiritual conversations, and we may disagree at times, but these disagreements will challenge us and produce growth in the love and knowledge of Lord. This is a fluid small group; we may study through a book, a book in the Bible, enjoy a time of worship, or seek the Lord and a fresh touch of the Holy Spirit in prayer. This time is not bound to a rigid formula, but only to it’s core purpose; to have spiritual conversation together, and to inspire us to have a deeper conversation with our Lord. The Coffee House Small Group meets Wednesday nights at 6, please join us as we seek the Lord together.
Sometimes being at home and trying to pray can be distracting. We start to pray and the kids, the pet or the spouse needs something. When we’re seeking God in prayer the distractions seem to be endless, and we just need a quiet place away from those things to focus on Him. The purpose of this ministry is; to provide a quiet place for prayer, to give people the opportunity to be prayed for by our loving staff, and to provide an opportunity for believers to pray for the church as a whole. Prayer rooms will be open at New Life Center during our regular business hours: Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 5pm, Wednesdays from 9am to 8pm, Fridays and Saturdays the office is closed.
We are thankful to be able to support missionaries serving in the United States and around the world. We pray for the needs of our missionaries, focusing on a different missionary family each month, and we enjoy when our missionaries are able to join us for a service. We also provide opportunities for our church body to be involved in missions trips. Missions is an integral part of our ministry at New Life Center and we desire to develop and foster, within our church body, a heart of missions for our own community.
